Abstract.

We investigated collisional processes involved in the population of the Rb2 diffuse band through resonant excitation of Rb atoms. Near-infrared (780 nm) and violet (420 nm) diode lasers were used for the Rb first (\(\rm 5 ^{2}S_{1/2}\to 5 ^{2}P_{3/2}\)) and second (\(\rm 5 ^{2}S_{1/2}\to 6 ^{2}P_{3/2}\)) resonant doublet excitations. Laser induced fluorescence spectra were detected and investigated at different rubidium densities, buffer gas pressures and excitation wavelengths.
